8/10 91% Boiled Angels: The Trial of Mike Diana (2018) Boiled Angels helps us wake up outside the "woke" bubble. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 100% Find Me (2019) This film could have easily devolved into some corny Nicholas Sparks drivel or low-brow comedy bro-fest, but instead, Huang tells it perfectly, never getting too sappy or letting the humor get in the way of the story. - Film Threat EDIT

4.5/5 100% General Magic (2019) In the grand scheme of things, failure is not only an option but a necessary step in the right direction. Maybe that didn't work, but why and where does it point? The future is wide open as long as we keep moving forward. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 No Score Yet It Takes A Lunatic (2019) Handman's legacy will last as long as his students continue to grace the screens we watch. Every expression, inflection, and movement has been touched by this madman who simply strives to make our lives a little better through the performing arts. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 92% You Don't Nomi (2019) While far from a straightforward documentary about a widely marginalized film, You Don't Nomi reminds us that it's okay to like things with rough edges, that streamlined perfection is overrated... - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 100% Rewind (2019) It's a level of bravery that few of us can muster, but an inspiration to anyone who has ever faced the same challenges. Talk about a superhero. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 100% Circus of Books (2019) It sends a strong message that we should never be ashamed of who or what we are and that the freedoms we enjoy were fought and won in the most unusual of places. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 100% Slay the Dragon (2019) Slay the Dragon emphatically proves that no matter how rigged the system is and how high the opposition is stacked against you, it is possible to make changes if you're passionate and articulate enough to convince your neighbors... - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 80% Crown Vic (2019) Joel Souza hasn't reinvented the wheel with Crown Vic, but he has definitely sent it down a different road. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 No Score Yet New Money (2019) New Money serves as an excellent reminder of where desperation can lead if we let it get the better of us. - Film Threat EDIT

4/10 71% Core of the World (2018) There's a faction of filmmakers that strives to emanate real life in their art and end up putting the audience to sleep. Core of the World is like that. It's so true to life that it ends up a complete dud. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet King of Beasts (2019) Almagor and Harel are completely successful in presenting a subject with enough information that we can come to our own conclusions in the end. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 80% Any One of Us (2019) It's tough being tied to a wheelchair and Any One Of Us does an excellent job of making this abundantly clear. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Salvage (2019) Elliott captures it all with humor and respect for her subjects. The townspeople don't come off as inbred hillbillies, rather they make very intelligent arguments as to why this pastime is so important. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 100% For Sama (2019) For Sama will be the single most heart-wrenchingly honest film you have ever seen. No amount of acting, elite accolades or story manipulation will ever compare to the genuine truth captured by a woman with a camera in Syria. - Film Threat EDIT

3/10 74% Lords of Chaos (2019) You would think a real biopic would take the time to capture a groundbreaking musical movement and really dig into the personalities of those who created it, as well as those who lost their lives for it. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 22, 2019
4/10 92% The Distant Barking of Dogs (2018) Despite good intentions, The Distant Barking of Dogs falls drastically short of the powerful impact a film like this should deliver. - Film Threat EDIT

2/10 88% Newly Single (2018) Sadly, what could have been the next Tiny Furniture gets so wrapped up in its own narcissism that it falls flat with a dull thud. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 4, 2019
7/10 No Score Yet The Drone (2019) If you're looking for lavish cinematography or a deep message, you won't find it here. The Drone is just silly entertainment with some fun kills. It doesn't ask to be taken seriously; it just wants us to smile. We need more of these. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 63% Velvet Buzzsaw (2019) In the end, you're entertained, but not so invested in the characters that you're hooked to every word. It's enjoyable, but not memorable, and certainly, nothing that lingers in the mind... - Film Threat EDIT

3/10 13% An Acceptable Loss (2019) What could have explored the real complexities behind a serious issue instead became a self-congratulatory pat on the back for holding a specific viewpoint, and a boring one at that. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 No Score Yet New Wave: Dare to Be Different (2017) As obnoxious as the retro trend of old technology can be, there are possibilities on the fringes. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Mandao of the Dead (2018) Dunn may not have much experience - this is only his second feature - but he makes a better film than contemporary directors with twenty-plus features on Amazon. His brand of passion and dedication cannot be imitated or learned. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 93% Starfish (2019) While he could have stayed stuck in the black void of sorrow, White instead made something beautiful. Honestly, he could not have paid a better tribute to his friend. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 No Score Yet Olympia (2019) This, folks, is why we respect our elders. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 72% The Apparition (L'apparition) (2018) Despite its shortcomings, The Apparition remains an interesting watch if you're willing to put in the effort. The direction and performances alone are worth the price of admission. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 40% High Voltage (2018) An interesting blend of dramatic scenes and supposed archival footage makes for a quasi-documentarian approach along the lines of Behind the Music or, more to the point, Paranormal Witness. A music video interlude proves his eye exceeds most others. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 22, 2018
9/10 88% After Everything (Shotgun) (2018) After Everything shows us that there's always a future at the end of the journey. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 40% Spiral (2018) It's nice to know there are filmmakers willing to turn genres upside down to get something more interesting than the standard storyline. Spiral succeeds because it is different. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 75% Bomb City (2018) Every piece is flawless, right down to the soundtrack. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Lesser Beasts (2018) In Lesser Beasts, Casey T. Malone has produced a science fiction art film that not only ranks with the greats, he practically made it by himself with no money. That alone is worth attention. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 11% The Basement (2018) [For] low-budget horror, The Basement certainly isn't the worst, but it's far from the best. It's a good time-killer with great gore and decent performances, a nice background while you play that game on your phone. Don't expect anything more. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Danger Diva (2017) In the end, Danger Diva doesn't really do it. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2018
9/10 53% Blood Fest (2018) Horror's goal is simply delivering fun. The thrill of constant frights releases rollercoaster-level endorphins the fans can't get enough of the rush. Blood Fest shoves it right in our faces and then some. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2018
9/10 63% The Public Image is Rotten (2018) The Public Image Is Rotten rises to the top of rock documentary filmmaking with a refreshing sense of candid storytelling only made possible by the genuine frankness of its subjects. - Film Threat EDIT

3/10 No Score Yet The Jurassic Dead (2017) It takes a special kind of ineptitude to make zombie dinosaurs uninteresting. Sadly, great concepts do not make a good film. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 75% Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song (1971) [It] brazenly kicked the door open for everything from direct imitators like Shaft, Superfly, and Dolemite to modern filmmakers like Tyler Perry and Ice Cube. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2018
8/10 No Score Yet Big Legend (2018) Big Legend isn't here to change your mind about politics or make you feel some deep emotion. This is pure mindless entertainment of the highest drive-in quality. Roger Corman should be proud. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 2, 2018
3/10 25% Beach House (2018) Beach House has all the makings of great low-budget horror: limited cast, isolation and a somewhat plausible variable. Sadly, these elements get lost in messy camerawork and a mundane screenplay. - Film Threat EDIT

4.5/5 69% Seven Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss By Passing Through the Gateway Chosen By the Holy Storsh (2018) It's The Loved One for millennials, a film that forces us to laugh at something we'd rather not even acknowledge. Fortunately, the journey is well worth the price of admission. - Film Threat EDIT
Read More | Posted May 10, 2018
4.5/5 75% Back Roads (2018) A dark, claustrophobic thriller that stays on your mind long after viewing. - Film Threat EDIT

5/5 No Score Yet Home + Away (2018) Ogens reveals these stories with raw compassion. Through the eye of his lens, we see these kids take their struggles head-on, whether preparing for playoffs or nearly failing in class. - Film Threat EDIT

4.5/5 50% Vampire Clay (Chi o sû nendo) (2018) Monster movies are always a bit tongue-in-cheek going all the way back to the days of the guy in a rubber suit. Their goal is to make you smile and cheer when something crazy happens. In that regard, Vampire Clay succeeds. - Film Threat EDIT
